Margaret Bag ~ Take 2

The EB Beginner Sewers had an unofficial challenge to make a Margaret Bag in March. I dashed one off in a black and white print which I decided was too busy with the small print of that fabric.
When I discovered how easy a bag it was to make I decided to make another one in my favourite fabric of the month Floral Kitties.

I had Tea Dyed some White drill to use as the lining but I decided the colour was not quite right so I used the same Kitties fabric as the lining as well as the outer.

I still have about 3 yards of this Kitties fabric left (did I mention I loved it) I got excited when I found it reduced at Spotlight to $4/m down from $18/m so I bought a lot!

I used the drill as the interlining, waste not want not! The button is a matching one to the first bag from my stash.

DH looked at this bag and said I was getting handy now, apparently I was a bit slap happy in some of my 'early' projects... He may be right as I did receive plenty of positive feedback and a request for a link to the pattern at the Book Club Meeting yesterday!

They do say practise makes perfect and with the sewing machine a permanent fixture on my kitchen table I am getting plenty of practise...
